Construction of a proposed dam impounding the Yukon .River does not constitute a national need. In fact, it is adverse to preservation of wildlife. The grandiose scheme would impound 9.6 million surface acres in a body of water somewhat larger than Lake It would mean elimination of Indian villages and hunting grounds. A natural refuge for something like 1.5 million ducks, geese, cranes and swans would be eliminated. Such a gamble would be such magnitude that the target date for completion would be close to the year 2000. Who would pay the bill? Obviously, the American taxpayers would have to come across with a figure from $1.3 to $1.8 billion, not including indemnity to Indians and homesteaders along the Yukon. The scheme, being promoted in Alaska, as a development project would, in the long run, prove to be a wholesale sacrifice of natural resources. It would be preferable to make an expenditure on highways so that visitors can inspect the scenic beauties of Alaska. In the long run, the 50th state would gain greater benefit. And, wildlife could continue in its natural habitat. , . In the United States, wildlife refuges are being promoted. ^ ,. The proposal to construct Rampart Dam impounding the Yukon River would have the opposite effect. Why should American taxpayers be asked to con- tribtue a vast sum of money for a project which would be detrimental rather than beneficial? • . The 50th state is the last frontier in the nation. Obviously, it should be developed but not at the expense of ruining its natural beauty, sacrificing wildlife and destroying the supply of food for the Indian population. Jail Liberty Man In Slayings at Station RICHMOND, Ind. (UPI)—Authorities said today a factory worker has admitted the killing of two filling station attendants in a §100 robbery because he needed money to pay rent. James Theodore Pruett, 28, Liberty, was charged with first- degree murder following his confession Monday night, authorities said. Officials said the case would be presented to a Wayne County grand jury. Pruett signed a confession following questioning by State Police and local officers. . Police said Pruett was picked up early Monday for questioning in the shooting deaths of Roy Waskom, 45, and Robert Mopps. 39. and that evening. arrested later They said he. was arrested while driving to work in an old model auto which witnesses said they saw pulling from the service station where the shootings occurred shortly after the incident. Both men were found shot in the head last week, with the station's .cash register and their wallets rifled. Authorities estimated less than $100 was taken. Waskom was dead at the scene and Mopps died a short time later in a hospital. By MARGARET A. KILGORE WASHINGTON (UPI)—States from the Atlantic to the Pacific rushed today to beat a bidding deadline for a $280 million atom smasher which, the Atomic Energy Commission plans to build by 1973. With the cut-off date set for midnight, numerous state officials airmailed or hand-carried their formal applications for the facility which would mean more jobs and added prosperity to their communities. Indiana's bid was made today by Presidents Elvis Stahr and Frederick Hovde of Indiana and Purdue Universities, respectively. They went before the AEC with an offer for a site near proposed Eagle Creek Reservoir at Indianapolis. At last count, 20 firm proposals had been received. At least a dozen more were expected. The states which have applied claim they are meeting the AEC's criteria by offering 3,000 available acres of land owned by,- or reasonably available to, the federal government. Electric Power Load The property must have the potential of delivering a firm electric power load of several hundred megawatts and a minimum of 2,000 gallons a minute high quality water. It must be reasonably close to a commercial and industrial center with research and development activities and reasonably close to communities hav- ing adequate housing-, cultural and educational facilities. The AEC says the site also should be close to adequate surface transportation systems and a major airport with frequent service to major cities. The big appeal to a community is that the facility will employ some' 2,000 scientific and technical personnel and their families. It also will provide work for laborers during the construction. Pending Applications States with pending applica- tions are Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Alabama, South Carolina, Ohio, Florida, Kentucky, Texas, Missouri, West Virginia, Mississippi, Nevada, North Carolina, Oregon, Tennessee, Montana, New Hampshire and California. The AEC will look over the Circuit Court A transfer of claim, seeking $1,345.68, 'has been filed by Mrs. H. S. McKee against the estate of the late Gertrude E. Barlow.

Kaltenborn NEW YORK (UPI) — For more than three decades a clipped, Harvard-accented radio voice brought news and opinion to millions of Americans. The voice, that of H.V. Kaltenborn, the colorful dean of broadcast commentators, has been stilled forever. The 86-year-old veteran newscaster died late Monday at Roosevelt Hospital of a heart ailment. He had been stricken Sunday, according to a family spokesman, only two days after arriving here from his Palm Beach, Fla., winter home. Within the broadcasting industry, Kaltenborn was known for Astronauts (Continued from Page One) white and blue Air Force plane ^ aimost lt , ej 1JB . C U11CC1111S at 9:25 EST.

Of the million flag-waving Chicagoans who jammed the city's streets to cheer the space twins, White could only say: almost feel like cheering Michigan, their alma mater. McDivitt told a welcoming crowd of about 400 at the airport that "I was born in Chicago but it is sure good to be bnrk to my real home." McDivitt was raised at nearby Jackson. White told the crowd, "I'm no stranger to Michigan. We used to come north in the summer and I've spent many and many a happy time in Michigan." The two astronauts were greeted as they stepped off the plane by Gov. George Romney, U-M Vice President Marvin Neihuss, Rep. Weston Vivian, D- Mich.. and members of the Michigan Legislature. Romney lauded them as "young men who have written a new page in history with their wings in one hand and a university degree in the other." They marched to a red and white festooned speaker's platform where Romney introduced them. Romney said, "I'm sure you are all thrilled to have the twin astronauts in Michigan because these are our astronauts. I'm sure it's safe to say that no two graduates of the University of Michigan have achieved so much at such a height." Still In A Spin The nation's newest space heroes left Chicago still in a spin from a full-throated, joyous welcome that started on a sunlit apron at O'Hare International Airport and ended with a Fourth of July style fireworks display that left the night sky over Lake v Michigan festooned with color. "It's almost like a dream," McDivitt said. "It certainly is something to remember fore- ever." "Nothing can ever top this," White beamed at the end of the out there." Everyone Proud It was a day of screams and shouts, of blizzards of tickertape streaming from Chicago's cavernous LaSalle Street, of flags and balloons, pennants and red roses. It was a day when everyone was unabashedly proud to be an American. At a jammed city council celebration, White hailed the welcome as "a display of just plain Americanism." "I really can't say how proud J. am to be an American," said McDivitt, who was born in Chicago. "There are not many people who get to be honored by the town in which they were born. I can't tell you how much I appreciate it." McDivitt, saying he was proud to be back in the city where his parents met, told the crowd "that has a lot to do with.. .whatever it has a lot to do with." They roared.

The plans was a B58 jet Hustler bomber similar to another B58 that crashed at the same air show in 1961. A U.S. Air Force spokesman said one member of the crew was killed and the other two rushed to the Percy Hospital at Clamart, a Paris suburb, with injuries. One was reported in excellent condition but the other was badly burned over 40 per cent of his body. The Air Force said Lt. Col. Charles D. Tubbs, 38, was killed. He is survived by his widow Marilyn Beatrice and children Mikel H., 16, and Carla R., 11. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Ralph G. Huffman, Rt. 3, Cisco, Tex. The Tubbs lived at 106 Alabama on the Little Rock base. Burned over 40 per cent of his body was Maj. Harold L. Covington, 38. His wife is Alma Stewart and their children are Thomas Wesley, 16, and Rebecca Lyn, 6, who live at 111 India Drive on the base. His mother is Una Maurine Hynson, 621 N. Jefferson St., San Angelo, Tex. Maj. Vincent F. Karaba, 30, apparently was not injured. His wife is Pauline Yvonne and they have a daughter Margaret Ellen, 7 months. He has been in the Air Force 8 years and lives on the base at 121 Kansas Circle. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. Anthony M. Karaba, 3130 W. Berkeley Road, Phoenix, Ariz. The B58 was one of two which flew from the Little Rock, Ark., Air Force base to Spain to take part in the Spanish-American Day festival last in today from the Torrejon airbase in Spain. Parisians were flocking to Le Bourget — where Charles A. Lindbergh ended his epic flight in 1927 — to see a giant new 720 : passenger Soviet airliner when the crash occurred. The Soviet plane, an Antonov 22, is believed to be the world's largest. It is powered by four turboprop engines and has a top speed of 400 m.p'h. The B58 flew in so low over the crowd that people leaped from their, cars in fear they would be hit. The Hustler landing lights knocked down = „ . along the runway, tore off its landing gear and slid on its belly for several hundred feet before its fuel tanks exploded. In 1961 a B58 which had set a series of speed records flew low over the air show crowds and then crashed in the distance. It had flown from New York to Paris a few days before in 3 hours and 19 minutes. During its flight from Texas to Paris it had flown from Washington to New York in a fraction over 16 minutes. The B58, which holds six international speed records, is a delta wing plane whose four jets are suspended below, and whose three-man —" " iq ° tandem fashion in ..__ cockpit.
